The former SPAL man suffered a sprained left knee in the 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League earlier this month, but the club are not too worried regarding his condition.

Fares is expected to returning to squad training at the start of next week, and is likely to feature in the match against Spezia on the 3rd April, after the conclusion of the ongoing international break.
